Seed library

The Seed Library provides the public with free access to open-pollinated and non GMO seeds. It aims to support local food systems, build seed saving literacy, and promote locally adapted plant genetics. Join a growing community.

Order seeds

The Mississauga Seed Library order form is closed for the 2022 growing season.

Add to the seed library

Borrow. Grow. Return.

When the growing season is over, harvest your seeds and return a portion of them to the library, to help keep the seed library self-sustaining.

We are now accepting seed donations at any Mississauga Library location.

The Mississauga Seed Library accepts only open-pollinated heirloom (non-hybrid, non-GMO) pesticide-free seeds, which are less then 4 years old. Seeds should be clean and labeled with the seed type, year grown, and the location where it was grown.

Important note: do not save seeds from plants grown from hybrid seeds. Seeds from these plants will not produce plants like the parent plant, and will not grow true-to-type.
